artrenewal.org - mirrored html files have incorrect links

When mirroring www.artrenewal.org, many of the mirrored pages pages have very wrong links. For instance, in index.htm, the very 1st image on the page has SRC="images/default.htm", the online page has SRC="images/title.jpg". This type of error is repeated throughout the 2GB download. Please help...

In addition, the pop-up(?) menu bar at the top of the index page does not work, making the mirrored site virtually unnavigatable.

Rick,

Thank you for reporting about the site.

I made some improvements in Offline Explorer Pro code that should make downloading of that site better.

Please download the updated version of Offline Explorer Pro here:
http://www.metaproducts.com/download/betas/oep963.zip

Please unzip the file and replace the old oe.exe file with the new one.

Next, add the following two lines to the URLs field of that Project:
http://artrenewal.org/javascript/new_menu/menu_ie.js
http://www.artrenewal.org/javascript/new_menu/menu_ie.js

Try to redownload some pages to see if it behaves better offline.

Best regards,

Thanks, I got the new version (.963) but the link/filename problem remains.

It seems that some (not all) links in the downloaded html and asp pages are having the ending changed to `default.htm`, most noticable when the link is to an image as it then does not display. On the index.htm page, most of the image links are changed like this. When the pages are viewed on-line, and the page sources compared, the changes to the downloaded version are obvious.

The changes seem random throughout the downloaded files, but always happen in the same places if the same file is downloaded again.

This seems very strange!

I did get the menu working (at least on the index page) by editing the page sources.

Regards,
Rick.
